The Vipassana Meditation App was started by Andrea Mangiarotti in 2017. Andrea, living as a Buddhist for over 15 years, studied various Vipassana techniques as well as attended a number of Vipassana retreats in Northern Thailand and neighboring countries. He decided to make Vipassana meditation a fundamental part of his life and to start contributing for the benefit of others. One manifestation of his intention was the development of a meditation timer app that has now reached over 100,000 users.
